Dreadnought (1981)

How could you miss with Yuen Biao and Leung Ka Yan, set in the last century in the time of Wong ? Well, they managed it !
The plot is very muddled, and casting Yuen as a wimp doesn't help. The fight scenes are the only thing worth watching, and they do get pretty good towards the end.
The best scene is about 35 minutes in, when Wong FW's sworn enemy send The Demon Tailor to assassinate Wong FW. Watching this guy pretending to measure Wong FW while trying to kill him is absolutely hilarious.
Apart from that, the climactic fight scene is a ripper. Judicious use of the fast-forward button is advised ;)
Lastly, no clue at all is given about what the title has to do with the story. Hmmmmmm
